Former IPS Amitabh Thakur Case: First IG chair snatched, Farewell not even found, now forcibly longing for retirement files
The troubles of Amitabh Thakur, a senior police officer of the RR-1992 batch of the Indian Police Service (IPS), UP cadre, are not taking the name of lessening. Amitabh Thakur, who remained in the eyes of the sultanate and bureaucrats for all his life while working in the police, suddenly came into the limelight again on 3 June 2021. A new headache has arisen for Amitabh Thakur, a former IPS officer and forced out of the job of khaki uniform.
A government order is the reason for the troubles of Amitabh Thakur, who is being proved by the throat most of the time, knowingly or unknowingly in the job of half-hearted police and all the sultanates of the vast state like Uttar Pradesh. Say or give important information. In which it has been said that all the documents or files they want to see cannot be given or shown to them legally.
'Forced retirement' was done in March
According to the developments, Amitabh Thakur was expelled from the Indian Police Service by the Union Home Ministry on 17 March 2021. In common parlance, this is called forced retirement. However, in government documents such a move is also called compulsory retirement. However, after this happened to himself, Amitabh Thakur had "Forced Retired IPS" written before IPS on the name-plate hanging outside his house.
After retiring from the job of IPS in March 2021, Amitabh Thakur, upset with the whole episode, started taking steps at his level. He wanted to know that the complete government details of his act should be provided to him in writing, due to which the government of the country refused to consider him eligible for government public service and fired from the job of IPS.
Again the tales of sorrow started like this
Against this, Amitabh Thakur demanded from the government all the files and documents related to his compulsory retirement by 26 March 2021 (about 8-9 days after forced retirement). In these documents, documents related to correspondence (files, note sheets, official letters) etc. made by the government before their forcible retirement were prominent. This letter of Amitabh Thakur was sent by the Home Department of the state to the Governor of the state (Raj Bhavan) for approval.
As soon as the reply came from Raj Bhavan, the State Home Department (Police Services) Section-2, Lucknow made its reply and sent it to the Director General of Police and Amitabh Thakur. In the reply sent by the Uttar Pradesh Home Department, it is clearly written that it is not possible to provide any document sought by the applicant. In Uttar Pradesh State Home Department's letter no. 523/Ch.P.0-2-21-522(43)/2017 dated June 3, 2021, the entire matter is clearly mentioned on a point-by-point basis. According to this, former IPS officer Amitabh Thakur, through his letter dated March 21, 2021, asked for photocopies of all the papers related to him (Amitabh Thakur) in the letter of the Uttar Pradesh government, related note sheets, correspondence, minutes etc. Huh.
The government's reply shook
In response to this letter and after the approval of the Governor of UP, the reply sent by the State Home Department to Amitabh Thakur is the main reason for his concern. It is clearly mentioned in the letter written by Special Secretary Kumar Prashant that this reply is being given by the State Home Department only with the approval of the Governor. According to what is written in the reply, “The records demanded by Amitabh Thakur are not due as per the rules. Because in the records sought by him (desired) documents like notesheets, correspondence, minutes regarding his compulsory retirement are of very confidential nature. Which is also directly related to the important discussions and approvals between the higher officials. Therefore, in such a situation, the letter dated 26 March 2021 seeking photo copies of these documents by Amitabh Thakur former IPS is disposed of with this.
Let us tell you that when Amitabh Thakur was forcibly removed from the UP Police Department (from the job of IPS), he was posted as Inspector General (IG Rules and Manual) in those days.
Not only Amitabh Thakur in the list
Along with Amitabh Thakur, Rajesh Krishna (Senior 10th Battalion Barabanki) who was accused of scam in police recruitment in Azamgarh and Rakesh Shankar (DIG Establishment) who was implicated in a suspicious role in Deoria Shelter Home episode were also removed from the government service. I went. All these police officers were not considered by the government to be capable of being retained in the public service.
Therefore, it was decided to retire them before completion of service in public interest under sub-rule 3 of Rule-16 of All India Services (DCRB) Rules, 1958. It is noteworthy that after being ousted from the job of IPS, Amitabh Thakur had sought his own "farewell-party" from the Directorate General of Police in the same way as the custom of giving to all his other counterparts before him at the time of retirement was given by the UP Police Department. I was walking continuously. However, the department had also allegedly rightfully ignored that demand of Amitabh Thakur of Farewell party.
